Marasovic Arhitekti not too long ago accomplished a renovation of a primary ground condo within the heart of Koper, Slovenia. Condo v2 is positioned in a historic dwelling that housed a noble household previous to World Warfare II, and afterwards it was damaged up into flats. One of many outstanding particulars of the house was the double peak ceiling, which supplied the architects many prospects in the course of the design course of. The challenges they confronted had been the restricted variety of home windows (solely three) and the consumer requiring a large number of areas throughout the 100 sq. meters, together with a big front room, a bed room, an workplace that will also be one other bed room, toilet, a storage room and utility house.
To realize the completed outcomes, the architects designed a second facade with two ranges behind it. The double peak house includes an open front room, eating space and kitchen, whereas the decrease ground behind the facade homes the workplace behind floor-to-ceiling home windows, a hallway (additionally behind glass) that results in the utility room, toilet, closet and stairwell to the second ground bed room. Upstairs, behind an identical set of glass panels, is the bed room. The glass fronts permit pure mild to the again of the condo, reverse the three home windows, in addition to views of the primary road.
Black particulars and furnishings pop towards the stark white partitions and pale wooden parts. The minimalist kitchen options matte black cupboards for the lowers and a complementary open shelf above, with a Ferm Residing eating desk paired with matching Nemea chairs by Pedrali.
Within the bed room, the black-framed home windows open for airflow, however could be blocked out with two layers of curtains for privateness and darkness when wanted.
